I'm waiting for my sister to get out of the shower so I can get one.. so I gotta kill some time.

I'll talk about something extremely ANNOYING that happened over the weekend! It goes like this:

On Saturday before I tried to get my hair dyed, I stopped by the Wawa near my house to use the ATM machine. First of all, my card barely worked and kept saying it was invalid. I kept trying to use it though and finally it was allowing me to take money out. Instead of giving me the $80 that I wanted, it made a lot of churning noises and ONLY gave me a receipt. It definitely deducted the money from my account though!! Right after this happened, the machine went blank and then said "temperarily out of order". I went up to the people working at Wawa and of course they were of NO help at all. I understand that they have basically no affiliation with the PNC Bank ATM machines and can't even get inside of them, but I was fucking mad nonetheless. I wanted them to reach inside of their cash registers and hand me over my lost money, even if that is unreasonable. A man working there said I had to contact my bank and they'll straighten everything out. Yesterday I went into the bank and there was some form in their system that is specifically for people who just get a receipt out of the machine but no cash. The guy filled it out with all my contact info and said someone would call me within a week. I have a feeling that it's going to take weeks for me to get my money back that I should have fucking gotten two seconds after I swiped my damn card into the atm machine. I'm still really mad about this.

My dad turned the air conditioner on this afternoon and now whenever I walk into the house from being outside in the hot weather, I smell that air conditioner scent and feel the cold air.. it seems like today is a day in July, not May. It's nice.

I hope you get your money back. The commercial was wrong: ATM DOES NOT FIX EVERYTHING!!
The ATM by me used to make funny sounds and print out a second receipt saying that I'd won a free coffee almost every time I used it. The funny thing about this was the date on the free coffee. It was something like January of 2001.
